Parent Conduct

PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

  • Children have more need of example than criticism.
  • Make athletic participation for your child and others a positive experience.
  • Attempt to relieve the pressures of competition, not increase it. A child is easily affected by outside forces.
  • Be kind to your child's coach and officials. The coach is a volunteer giving of his personal time and money to provide a soccer experience for your child.
  • The opponents are necessary friends. Without them your child could not participate.
  • Soccer is a team sport. Parents should applaud the successes of all players as well as their own child.
  • Between the exuberance of the winner and the disappointment of the loser we find a person called a referee. All of them follow the same creed: to watch every move of every player and to call the game to the best of his/her abilities.
  • Do not question his/her judgment and never the honesty. He/she is a symbol of fair play, integrity and sportsmanship.
  • Accept the results of every game. Encourage the child to be gracious in victory and turn defeat to victory by working towards improvements.
  • Parental evaluation carries a great deal of weight with the child. The attitude shown by parents at games towards their child, the opposing team, the officials and the coach influence a child's behavior in sports. Criticism, disrespect for officials and opponents by parents bent on immediate success rather than long-range benefits undermines the purpose of sport and brings the games stresses beyond those of competition.
